At Prince of Peace . . .

In an age of constant change, we still believe in the unchanging Holy Trinity: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit -- three persons in One God.

In an age of Humanism's confusion, we still believe that God created the universe in six 24-hour days as revealed in Genesis, and that the whole Bible is God's Word, free from all errors, contradictions or myths.

In an age of doubt, we still believe that Jesus was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary.

In an age of fear and guilt, we still believe that Christ died on the cross as payment for the sins of the world, and that He arose from the grave because His sacrifice was accepted by God, so that the world is declared righteous on account of Him

In an age of do-it-yourself religion, we still believe that eternal salvation is through faith in the "good news", not obedience to the law; by grace alone, apart from all works; by the Holy Spirit working through the Gospel in the Word and Sacraments, not by human reason, religious sincerity, spiritual fervor, "Spirit-baptism" or any other condition, work, or "add on" of man.

In an age of "Ecu-mania," we still believe that to preserve the pure Gospel of Christ for ourselves and others, Christians are commanded by the Lord to test and judge all teachings and philosophies, hold to whatever is according to God's Word, and avoid all religious fellowship with that which is contrary to that Word.

In an age of "evangelical materialism", we still believe that the "evangel" is the proclamation of forgiveness and the gaining of heaven through faith in Christ, not the preaching of principles by which one may lead a "good" life and gain earthly prosperity.


"If you hold to my teaching,

then you are really my disciples.

Then you will know the truth,

and the truth will set you free."  

John 8:31-32

Our History

The history of Prince of Peace Lutheran Church is a story of what God is able to accomplish from small beginnings. The congregation was organized in 1960 through the efforts of one family who saw the need for a church in which the Word of God would be taught faithfully according to the Lutheran Confessions.


In the fall of 1960, Mr. & Mrs. Frank Hansen and their family began holding services in a rented hall and later a home in Hecla. They were served by Pastor David Gullerud until the summer of 1961. In the summer of 1961 they purchased a home in Hecla to serve as a chapel-parsonage. This building still serves as the parsonage today.


Pastor H.E. Rutz of Jamestown, North Dakota, served as vacancy pastor in 1961, until Pastor Clifford Kuehne accepted the congregation's call. The congregation formally organized on March 9, 1962. Other pastors who have served the congregation are: Arthur Schulz (1963-68), Walter Schaller (1969-74), Norman Greve (1975-83), John Klatt (1984-90), Paul Krause (1991-96), John Johannes (1997-2002), Matthew Hanel (2003-05), Nathan Pfeiffer (2005-2011), and Rick Grams (2011-2016).  On August 21, 2016 Timothy Daub was installed as pastor of Prince of Peace.
